Anyone's guess with the team, but we really should have enough to win this game. Kick off at 3pm.



A lot is going to depend on whether Gibbos available. These appear to be the games were we should be taking all 3 points and end up drawing. l think it's now or never. After the Chelsea game we are back in amongst the average teams for a while. We  need to win this. But we might start running out of our quality first team players. Got my fingers crossed Gibson avoids the ban.

Good point. I'm not sure. Maybe someone can find out? It could make a big difference to the result

Why wouldn't they? They were quick enough to ban Fellaini last Monday.




As far as i know a straight red is an automatic ban. Everton would have to appeal tomorrow after their decision is made. I'm not sure what the process is in terms of timescale. If a ban? we appeal. do they sit in committee? to either overturn the ban or uphold the ban. It's not the normal run of the mill situation. Their must be a precedent set somewhere?

I'm pretty sure that, if we're appealing, we'll have done so by the end of today. That way, whoever sorts out the disciplinary side at the FA can sift through both incidents tomorrow (which will hopefully be quickened up as the referee's reports will no doubt need to be handed in tomorrow).

Chances are they'll either rescind both red cards, or postpone the decision until after Boxing Day. I'm expecting the former to happen, but either way I think Gibson will be ok to play on Wednesday.




He's really important at the moment especially with Felli fucking up last week. I didn't think he was the bees knees yesterday, but, we just have so much more time to construct moves when he plays. Let's hope your optimism is proved right. :)
